SF 2021 June - Dream In Colors Blog Hop


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we celebrate COLOR!!
The concentration this month is on our new in-colors (one or all) and I chose to focus on my very favorite - Pale Papaya!  I just cannot get enough of this color!

As well as the Hey Chick Bundle that is leaving us the end of the month.  I am so happy SU brought this back for awhile, and added dies!  It's a fav of mine also.  So I made this card and treat holder combo.  Here is the pattern for the treat holder.
These are great as they are origami - so they need no adhesive - and you can make them to  hold a Ghiradelli chocolate out of a 6"x6" piece of DSP.  Here it is with the scoring as above.
Trim out those top two sections as shown in the diagram.  after this you add in the diagonal folds in the four squares.
Then fold it all together similar to an explosion box, folding the back top two points together in back and the bottom two in front.  Slip your Ghiradelli chocolate into that space in the middle and close up.  I trimmed the flap on each side at an angle, so I could actually just slide it in the first little gap and it holds shut without adhesive.
Here it is closed and ready to decorate.
I tied ribbon and twine around to match the card and added my sentiment and "egg" :)
Here's a close up of the card.  I really enjoy using up my scraps as a background.  I always end up with all those little strips - and now they are not wasted.  All my coloring was done with Pale Papaya blends with a Pumpkin Pie accent.
So stinkin' Cute and fun!!
